Actual phone conversation.

 

Me: Do you know how far it is to Redford?

 

Grandma: I think its pretty far, almost to Detroit. Why?

 

Me: Got an invite from a table-top group, but I'm trying to figure out how much of a drive it is.

 

G: It might take you a while. I think there's a lot of blacks there, too; I'd be wary.

 

Me: (Pause) Anyway...

 

 

 

*Sigh* I love my Grandma.... :shrug:

Probably. I remember when I was developing into a pre-teen with a social consciousness (early 1970s) my parents stopped using the n-word for my sake and instead started using the oh-so-much-more-progressive term "colored." :dumbo:
